Marble Hill Adventure Playground is based in East Twickenham, London. The local community group has been running the playground for many generations, which makes the centre a very cherished and valued asset to the community. Those that used to go there as youth are now taking their children to experience the same excellent play opportunities they once had themselves. As the centre is only used during the summer months they tend to use the space for storage throughout the rest of the year. These sad images demonstrate how the centre looks in the winter when the site is not being used. As you can see the environment is uninspiring and in desperate need of a facelift.
The playground operates a fully supervised open access adventure playground from Easter until autumn. The facility is unique in this area of London and offers positive divisionary activities for local children and young people aged 5-15 years. The adventure playground also provides the opportunity for children with impaired mobility to play alongside their peers on specially designed equipment. They aim to focus on rising self-esteem and therefore decrease the level of anti-social behaviour in the local area.
I am hoping, with the support of locals and the council, to renovate the site to it’s full potential using eco-friendly materials. I believe this project will be a perfect opportunity to promote exciting sustainable design to the local community. Ideally, with these changes, the centre will be able to open to the children all year round.
